If you started over with SL as a clean install...?

    If you have done the upgrade to SL, first as regular upgrade and then as a clean install, did you notice any difference?

    I have a laptop MBA that I upgraded and I am thinking about doing the erase and install. Is it worth it did you notice a better OS when you redid the installation?

    A clean install of SL for me resulted in a faster boot time and an overall faster system. Also helped me clean out a lot of stuff I forgot that I had and wasn't using. :)

    A clean install ran no better than the upgrade, I elected to do the clean install after the fact due to a similar idea as above … to get rid of the crap that I wasn't really using.

    SL ran faster & is performing better with a fresh/clean install.
